Mine, I soak with the hairs on. Holds more water and more steaming action (my theory). I'm used to eating stuff with hair on it anyway!

Throw your corn on the grill in the husk without doing anything to them. Grill on medium high heat while turning a little every 3 or 4 minutes until some of the husk is charred. this takes around 15 minutes. Pull off grill and remove shuck and silk. The shuck and silk comes right off very easy.

The easiest way for me is to soak whole in some water for about 10 minutes. Then grill rotating till the husks are browning/black. Remove and cut the end off with the nipple (Maybe 1/2" off the actual cobb). Squeeze from the other end (Hairy end) and the cobb should slide right out with no hair on what so ever. It is messy though i try to set up right over a trash can.

keep in husk, soak for a few minutes, wrap in tin foil, throw in the grill, indirect for about 20-30min.

I soak whole for a few hours or sometimes overnight. Grill with husk on. Shuck, then return to the grill for caramelizing. Take off the grill and add mayo, chipotle, chili powder, and parmesan cheese.

I'm even lazier that's why i grill with husk. Much easier to husk and get the hairs off once cooked.

Cooked the silk comes right off, that's the secret.

If I'm feeling fancy I'll brine them for an hour or two, but mostly they just get run under some water then tossed on the grill with the husks still on. When they're cooked it takes 2 seconds to shuck and de-silk them--you can just rub your hand down them from the tip to the stem and the silk all comes off.

I wish I could like grilled corn on the cob. It looks so beautiful, and it sounds so convenient. I've tried every one of the methods listed in this forum, soaking the husks, not soaking the husks, husking it first, etc ,etc.

It doesn't matter what I've tried, I still always go back to a short dunk in some boiling water as by FAR the best final texture result. The ability to add additional flavors/seasoning of doing it on the grill is so enticing, but the cooked texture of the final product is just not for me.

Heck, with good sweet corn I don't even care if it's cooked.

Soak, grill, cut about an inch off the top. It slides right out without the silk.

I have done this many times, and it is by far the best way to remove the husk and silk all at the same time. After that you can grill it or boil it, but it can be eaten as is just add butter, and season to taste. depending on you microwave you may only take about 3 minutes. Warning it will be very hot, add a minute per ear.

Sorry, just saw the above post... Duplicate info.

I use this trick followed by a little charing on a hot grill. You have to be careful because when it comes out of the micro it's already cooked. You can go too far on the grill if you're not careful. Play with a little less time in the micro. Just enough to get the silks off.

Peel the husks down, remove silk, push the husks back up, tie a piece of butcher's twine around the cob, soak in water for 30 minutes to an hour. Put on grill till done. Damn good.

I guess a person could have a large bowl of ice cubes and water to stop any further cooking. if your in the mood, it may be a good time to dehusk all the cobs and freeze for some other time.

I'm pretty sure I'm undercooking my corn on the grill when I get good sweet corn.

I like it with just a little crunch.

This is pretty much how I do it. Almost no silk left on the ear.

Besides the microwave trick, which I'm definitely gonna try, brushing the ear lengthwise with a vegetable brush or even a toothbrush will clean off the silk.

Nahhh...Put it on the grill. Rotate until it's black all around. Pull the husks back and get those char marks. The hairs should either stick to the husks, or be burnt off.

Thanks for all of the vids, Smitty. When I cook my corn, I let it get almost done and then shuck it. At that time all of the silk will come off with the shuck. Then I add my spice or flavoring and put it back in the grill or smoker for a few minutes to carmelize.

If I'm shucking it first, I use a vegetable brush to get the last silk off.

I'm going to try the microwave and squeeze method...sounds great.

I husk and rinse, then add a little mayo and sprinkle (generously, of course) with Old Bay.. Throw them over medium-high and turn every few minutes

Here is my favorite way to do sweet corn:

4 to 6 ears sweet corn, husked
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Ancho chili powder
Couple of grinds of black pepper

Set up your grill for a direct cook at 450F.
Combine everything but the corn in a 913 flame-proof pan (aluminum foil drip pans work great for this).
When the grill is ready, set the pan on the grate and heat just until the butter is melted. Remove from heat, but keep warm nearby.
Grill the corn directly on the grate, turning a little it every minute or so until the kernels are a deep yellow and have started to lightly blackened (about 5 minutes). Move ears to basting pan and rotate to coat. Return to the grill and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, turning often. Remove to the basting pan, rotate again to coat, and then move the pan full of corn to the grill. Let it sit on the grate until everything starts to bubble, about a minute.

I am from corn country and like my corn with butter and salt......So, to that end, I do it a couple ways:

1. Take ear, grab the top: leaves and silk both, then strip ear and break bottom of ear off that is the stalk. This is the easiest method to get most of the silks. If there are a few left, don't worry about it as they come off during cooking usually. Boil, roast, etc. Without the leaves as protection, you don't want to leave alone too long on the grill because the sugars cause it to get dark quick.

2. Take ears and put vertically in a 5-gallon bucket. Fill with water and let soak for an hour or so. Place directly on grill without shucking. When done, the silks come right off.

Dunk in real butter and kosher salt. Enjoy........

One other thing: Sweet corn is best right when it is picked, so you will want to pick it yourself or buy locally if possible. When sweet corn sits, the sugars start breaking down into starches and it won't taste near as good.

.....And that is the beauty of being able to get it within a few hours of being picked! :thumb:

I saw this "recipe" where you leave the husk on but cut the base of the corn off and nuke it, then squeeze the top and the corn squirts out th bottom free of most of the hair. Same technique works on the grill. Crank up the heat, turn when husk is charred, total time is about 15 min

I take mine out of the husk, sometimes I grill with nothing on it and other times I rub a little olive oil on the corn. I once did lime juice and chili powder.

I picked up some corn in the husk last night, went with the microwave, it came out very good with just butter, salt and pepper, my wife thought I was nuts, because that is all I had for dinner, well I did have three ears before I even realized it.:clap2:

THIS.

My in laws will always talk about the "good corn" they got at Wal-Mart in like April, and I just shake my head.

I don't buy corn unless I can be pretty confident it was picked that day or the day before. And then I try to eat it as quickly as possible.

During the offseason? I eat frozen corn that I bought fresh, blanched, and cut off the cob myself when the corn was in season.

The fresher the better without a doubt. But in today's world of crazy hybrids variety is also a huge determining factor of sweetness. Most of the time the more the farm is willing to spend on seed the sweeter the final corn...there are some crazy sweet hybrids out there these days.

Personally I have narrowed my sweet corn buying to one specific local farm. I get it at the market and I know they pick it the day of. When the peak of the season hits I buy a half bushel or so and spend an evening blanching, shocking, and cutting it off the cob. Blanch for probably a min or less then into ice water to stop the cooking.

Tip for that: buy it in bulk as soon as your local farmers are bringing it in big quantities. That first wave of corn will usually have more kernels than the later waves. At least that is the case up here in the Midwest.

Seriously, when I pull the frozen corn from the freezer I'm amazed at how sweet and delicious it still is. I suppose you could vacuum pack it still on the ears after blanching and shocking but I never have.

Fresh corn and BLTs with garden fresh tomatoes is my favorite summer meal.
